About West Side Community Cleanup

Interested in spending a few hours outdoors, engaging with the community and helping to beautify and improve Buffalo’s West Side neighborhoods? Come join Heart of the City Neighborhoods, Inc. on Saturday, May 7th, 2016, 9AM-12PM during our West Side Community Clean-Up on Buffalo’s West Side for an exciting opportunity to make a difference in one of Buffalo’s core, vibrant communities!

This volunteer position will assist Heart of the City Neighborhoods, Inc. (HOCN), a not-for-profit Community Development Corporation, with our efforts and mission to improve neighborhoods, housing opportunities, and the quality of life for residents in our service areas.

Volunteer-led neighborhood/community beautification projects help to revitalize and reinvest in communities that have experienced poverty and disinvestment. Volunteer-led beautification projects go a long way to add investment and promote ongoing investment, create more attractive and healthy communities, affirm personal dignity of residents, and boost and inspire neighborhood pride; efforts that have invaluable/meaningful short-term impacts purposed to insure long-term revitalization. During this project, volunteers will clean-up trash and debris littered in the community, help in community gardens and work and engage with community stakeholders including neighborhood block clubs and residents, to help beautify and improve neighborhoods, giving residents/neighbors an inspiring start to spring.

HOCN will provide all of the necessary tools and materials for volunteers to safely collect trash and debris. Volunteers will be provided with waters and snacks throughout the event and lunch at the end. Volunteers will also be provided the necessary training and guidance for all of the event’s activities by HOCN, group leaders, and community leaders/members. Just bring your caring attitudes and enjoy a few hours of making a difference in our community. Take advantage of this great opportunity to engage with the community, learn more about Buffalo’s vibrant West Side, socialize with friends and new people, and have a positive impact on the community and environment.
